Nakuru - NACADA chairman, John Mututho, has put on notice chang’aa brewers in Michatha village in Molo district to close down their illegal businesses or face the full wrath of the law.
Mututho said his office will not allow chang’aa brewers to go unpunished for conducting the illegal business.
“Those who are still in this business must stop because the law will not be soft on them once we catch up with them,” he warned.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday morning, Mututho said that while conducting raids, police will also engage officers from the scene of crime in order to have a strong case in court.
He also urged the police officers to take samples of the brews in question and conduct tests at the government chemist so that more serious charges can be pressed against culprits.
“We have to arrest all these culprits and that’s why police must conduct thorough investigation when they arrest them,” he noted.
Mutuho said that they are targeting flouters of the law in western Kenya before embarking on raids within Nakuru County and other areas.
